Cory Doctorow: Why I Copyfight

,----[ Quote ]
| Why does all this copyright reform stuff matter, anyway? What's at stake?
| Everything.
| Until a very short time ago, copyright was an industrial regulation. If you
| fell under copyright's domain, it meant that you were using a piece of
| extraordinary industrial apparatus — a printing press, a motion-picture
| camera, a record press. The cost of this apparatus was significant, so adding
| a couple hundred bucks for the services of a skilled copyright attorney to
| the deal wasn't much of a hardship. It merely tacked a couple percentage
| points of overhead onto the cost of doing business.


Music stars unite to seek control

,----[ Quote ]
| UK pop and rock stars are taking action to try to gain ownership and control
| of their work from record labels.


British Government Violates Copyright

,----[ Quote ]
| As much as I utterly despise the entire premise of Intellectual Monopoly,
| this is about violating the principles of a Free License, and if it's good
| enough for the British government to violate our civil rights in the name of
| Intellectual Monopoly, then it's good enough for the Free World to protect
| its "property" (in fact Freedom) too…
